Early Life

David also attended the legendary acting workshop of Ian McKellen. He was overwhelmed by the performance art. He also participated in the South California Shakespeare Festival where he received two top prizes.

He attended Beverly Hills High School, which was home to many Hollywood stars. David found it hard to fit in, so he looked for comfort outside his classrooms. He was brilliant in science and math and dreamed of becoming a doctor. He attended several drama workshops. After graduating from high school in 1984, he decided to try his luck at acting. His parents insisted that he go to college. He quickly received his B.A. degree in theatre and speech from ‘Northwestern University.’ Soon after, he moved to Los Angeles to start a full-time career as an actor.
